He led the Empire 8 and ranked second in the country in Division III with his seven interceptions.

As a National Team of the Week selection earlier this season, Rodriguez joined an elite group of defensive backs this year as his seven picks currently ranks second in the team's single-season history.

St. John Fisher went 5-5 this season after a 3-6 record last season.
